FAQ – How can I Save Money When Travelling on the Bus
Can I get a discount as a senior citizen?
Many bus companies offer discounts for senior citizens. However, the age requirement can vary from company to company. Bus companies may either require you to prove your age when booking to get the discount. Others, like National Express, offer a senior coach card with a code that can be used when making online bookings.
What discounts are available for children?
Typically, babies and infants are allowed to travel free of charge. This usually depends on if the child is seated in their parent’s lap rather than in a booster seat. Different bus companies also have different policies when determining if children can get a discounted ticket. Age caps can vary from 10 to 16 while other companies may not offer any discounts for children.
Are there discounts available for students?
A number of coach companies, such as National Express, offer generous discounts for students in school, college or university. Students currently enrolled may obtain an International Student Card. This will then require a student ID for proof to receive the student travel card. These are then applied when booking online.
How can I find special deals or promo codes?
Bus companies frequently provide special deals and seasonal offers. These can be for holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween or various bank holidays. They can also be a way for a company to celebrate milestones, such as opening new bus routes or an anniversary. One of the best places you can find these are on the companies’ social media channels. Additionally, sites such as Honey, Swagbucks and Promo Code Watch regularly add the latest bus deals.
How do I apply limited deals or promo codes?
Once you have a promo code, you typically need to book online to get the deal. This is where we can help! You can use the CheckMyBus search engine to find bus routes for the day you’d like to travel. Then, you can filter your results by the bus company you have the promo code for. Then, when you click “view deal,” you’ll be redirected to the company’s webpage to make the booking on their site. While making the booking, you’ll typically find a field for promo codes which you can enter to apply the discount.
